Canon ELPH LT
I bought a Canon ELPH LT for Mary some years ago. She used it a few times, but eventually it ended up on a bookshelf gathering dust. I was impressed with the camera's performance back then, but as a sufficiently experienced husband, I knew better than to take her camera and use it. I only look dumb.
So it was a pleasant surprise to find this blue ELPH sitting in the local Goodwill store. I bought it for one entire dollar and the battery is still good! The other camera is my Canon A590IS. The ELPH is smaller.
Finding APS film is a little harder, though. A local drugstore carries it, but they were temporarily out of stock. One of the personnel said they did have the special negative carrier for APS, so there's one other worry gone. APS is a smaller format than 35mm, roughly 2/3 the size, and the film offers three different aspect ratios including panoramas. The Canon has a 23mm lens that focuses via an infrared range finder, and it will focus as close as 2 feet.
I'll post some photos when I get some film through this camera.
